GUTHRIE GENERAL, INC. – COMPANY HISTORY
Providing construction services for major health care providers in Arizona since 1975, with approximately 90% of our volume serving the healthcare community. Guthrie General, Inc. provides General Contracting, Construction Management, Construction Management at Risk, Design/Build, Architectural Design and Interior Design services throughout the Southwest.
Our founder, Robert E. Mann, began serving the healthcare construction industry in the State of Arizona in the 1950’s. Robert and his wife Marcelyn organized the company in 1975, using the knowledge he gained from his experience as an estimator and project manager in the hospital and healthcare fields.
Representing the second generation in the family owned and operated construction business, Robin Mann Guthrie joined the firm in 1979. It was this same year that Jim Guthrie began working in the family business progressing through the ranks as carpenter, superintendent, project manager to project director.
In 2004, Guthrie General added the feature of in house architecture and interior design. This opened a new and popular construction delivery method for our clients, Design/Build. It also introduced the third generation of Courtney Guthrie and Jaclyn Guthrie working with the design team. The turnkey solution has opened new opportunities and been received with accolades from our many clients that have utilized this seamless construction delivery process.
The majority of our clients are the major healthcare providers in the state of Arizona. We specialize in all aspects of healthcare construction, working in many of the hospitals all over the state as well as constructing several of the imaging facilities and medical office buildings. Guthrie General, Inc. also performs general contracting and design/build services for industrial, utility and religious facilities.
Providing a great work environment has been a constant goal. The implementations of benefits and a positive work place has been met with the training, and continuing education necessary to recruit top employees in the construction industry. The success of our business relies on the ability of our employees to provide a superior construction delivery and product. Many of our employees have remained on staff for over 20 years which speaks volumes for the success of our programs.
